Sweet Hello

I'm so happy I *finally* made a card using the Whiff of Joy Summer Stamp Kit that I've had forever! I used the Willow with Strawberry Basket image:


Quick notes: She was colored with Copics, cut out and popped up with foam tape. For the panel she's on, since there is no exact matting size in that style of Nestie, I cut the white panel on the embossed line to make it just a smidge smaller and then matted it with the dotted panel cut with the same Nestie (hope that makes sense!).

For her hair I used E53, E33, E35 and E37 (I use E53 instead of E31 because I think it's a better match to the other colors).

Challenges:
Whew! 7 challenges! I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: Sweet Hello sentiment - Whiff of Joy; patterned paper - DCWV Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl; Berry Sorbet ink and Spring Moss buttons - Papertrey Ink; Prima flowers; May Arts ribbon; heart rhinestone - Queen & Co.; Nestabilities.

Finished size is 5.5" square.

    love it, i have to agree that if you had used the nestabilitie the size it came it would have been too big, great idea to cut it in the embossed line.
